Injured Saints

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Jenkins and Harper didn't play nearly as bad as has been suggested. RG3 only threw two passes over 15 yards downfield. They absolutely owned our LB's over the short middle of the field....

Agreed. I actually think Harper did decent. That P.I. call was total bs. Thats the best coverage by harper that I have seen yet.

I don't doubt that the lb's got owned but I also notice that with this zone D the corners are playing, if we don't get pressure, we are screwed. I seem to remember hearing something about Drew loves playing against zone D. The reason I can see is that once the receiver gets past the CB's zone he is wide open. maybe the safeties are suppose to be there, I don't know.

Re: Injured Saints

Harper clearly lost track of his man in coverage a couple of times, so I wouldn't exactly give him high marks for the game, but he, like all the other DBs, is still adjusting to the new scheme, so I'm expecting improvements.

Jenkins really has to improve his tackling if he wants to get another contract from the Saints or become an effective FS.

I've been really high on Jenkins ever since he was drafted, but I'm slowly starting to lose my confidence in him, his potential, and his development.

Re: Injured Saints

Bump this thread.... and keep those of us updated who are out of range of
WWL during the week.


Im particularly concerned about Devery --- cant believe I couldnt get any update on ESPN or NFLN. They kept talking about the same 3 guys -- Buffalo RB, Titans QB, and some other guy. I cant believe Devery wasnt
on their key injuries report.

But we need Johhny Patrick & yes, Shanle

Can you lose track of a player playing zone? If you are referring to Harper on the PI call, I didn't see it either.

I guess you can't in principle, but I remember him trailing the soon to be receiver in one play, but being just a couple of steps behind when the ball was thrown.

And on another play, he was once again trailing the receiver cutting across the field, but got tangled up with another Saints' DB which caused the receiver to be wide open when the ball was thrown.

I would have to watch the game again to give you the exact plays I'm referring to, and maybe I can do that later in the week when the wounds have closed up a bit.

Re: Injured Saints

All good. I don't doubt what you are saying. It sounds like Harpers MO. Just didn't notice it with all the other suckage going on.
